Introduction

A simple & delicious soup that's low in calories but high in flavor. It can be prepared using vegetable, beef or chicken boullion - or for a milder flavor, none at all. A great source of protein + its vegan friendly too. A simple & delicious soup that's low in calories but high in flavor.
